Hotel pick-up / drop off by collective taxi and welcome drink. Cute Hawaiian face drawing (just rubbing powder falling off) and English / Spanish explanation of the Polynesian cooked underground food. Not much food but the show is done very well by a group of excellent dancers and players.

The voucher indicated that they would pick us up at the hotel between 6.30 p.m. and 7.00 p.m. We had to wait until 19.42 at the hotel reception until they arrived. In the reservation process it is indicated that the local operator would contact me to confirm.
